Once a new trilogy of "Star Wars" movies were announced, the big question is who the main characters would be. Would a new "Star Wars" continue where the story left off in "Return of the Jedi?" Thanks to Mark Hamill's new interview with "Entertainment Tonight," that's a little more clear.
"They're talking to us," the man who starred as Luke Skywalker says, "George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we were interested." Hamill also confirms that, should he, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford decide against returning, they were reassured they would not be recast. "They would write us out," Hamill reveals.
Hamill says no contracts have been signed yet, but Michael Arndt, the next film's writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, the new head of Lucasfilm at Disney, want to meet with him regarding a possible return. Hamill admits he has no idea what the new trilogy will be about, however he has ideas. »
